About Au Bon Climat
Since it was founded in 1982, Au Bon Climat has been a well respected producer of Burgundian-styled California wines. Jim Clendenen's Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs are mineral, focused and restrained in the early going, and sometimes quite oaky.

(a 75/35 blend): Pale yellow. Pungent pear skin and melon scents are lifted by notes of ginger and white pepper. Juicy and precise, offering dusty orchard and citrus fruit flavors and a touch of bitter quinine. Fleshier on the clinging finish, featuring smooth elements of honeydew and poached pear plus a touch of lemon curd.
